Animal Dietary Reporting
The animal dietary report is a key part of iFert’s overall assessment of a farm’s needs. It comes as no surprise that the nutritional needs of dairy animals are very different from those on dry stock farms. Looking at the nutrient levels and certain ratios within the plant without considering the dietary needs of the grazing animal can lead to unseen shortfalls that limit productivity.
Fertiliser is such a major capital cost that farmers deserve to be 100% sure that they’re going to get a return on their investment. At iFert we invest a lot of time up front to make sure that we accurately identify and prioritise all the limiting factors for production. Once we get that right, everything works from that baseline.
“Corey has shown us that important nutrients walk off the farm with the stock – so we need to keep replacing them. Clover production is through the roof, we’ve got more diversity in the pasture and it’s more palatable — the animals are looking great.”
